John David spent four years as the running back for the United Football League's Sacramento Mountain Lions. He then shifted to an acting career like his father and mother. He is best known for his role as Ricky Jerret on the HBO comedy series "Ballers."

This wasn't his first time on screen. In 1992, he made his big screen debut, playing a student in his famous father's film "Malcolm X." He was only nine years old at the time.

In 2010, John David also helped his dad co-produce his film called "The Book of Eli."

Recently, he earned both Golden Globe and Screen Actors Guild Award nomination for his role in Spike Lee's 2018 film "BlacKkKlansman."
